Quebec artist Lissa Tourigny uses oil paint to capture women exploring the memories of summer. Pink Box is based on a photograph by famed photographer Richard Avedon. "This painting symbolizes for me an era that no longer exists yet society continues to box women into this beauty standard". "My paintings are a map of my life, my travels and the emotions that touch me."
" My passion for water and the ocean, which is really present through my art have built the artist that i am. I work with oil paint on canvas and my images are mostly figurative women exploring the memories of summer. My paintings are a map of my life, my travels and the emotions that touch me. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it."
This nude in oil with windswept hair evokes a sense of freedom. The strength of the pose is softened by the fading limbs. Tourigny captures the sensuality of a woman beautifully.
